Without resistance to the Covid-19 lockdown regime, endless masking and social distancing, and now vaccine passports, government officials won’t willingly relinquish their newfound powers. It’s going to take courage from not only everyday Americans, but importantly from cultural figures, business executives, and beyond. That’s why it’s refreshing to see musician Eric Clapton take a stand.

In a statement Wednesday responding to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement that starting in September those entering crowded venues, such as nightclubs, will need to show proof of vaccination, Clapton said he’s got a message of his own.

“Following the PM’s announcement on Monday the 19th of July 2021, I feel honour bound to make an announcement of my own: I wish to say that I will not perform on any stage where there is a discriminated audience present,” Clapton said.

“Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, I reserve the right to cancel the show,” he added. 

While many liberals responded predictably, freedom-lovers congratulated Clapton on social media for his position.
